Well if other degrees even bothered to keep track I counter the argument, but they do not. So I imagine it is even worse in the other areas I mentioned.
http://www.forbes.com/2006/08/01/leadership-mba-salary-cx_tw_0801mbacomp.html Here is MBA stats and according to Forbes the "Average" MBA student is making around 100k. I find it hard to believe and there is no regulating body even keeping track of MBA grads. The "average" salary at my tier 4 is 80k, but that is pretty easy to do when you do not report half the people. I am sure MBA schools report the same bloated stats. http://www.grin.com/e-book/148269/unemployed-mba-graduate-diary. An unempoyed MBA, with no job, and a lot of debt. Sound like a theme we have heard somewhere before?http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30622026/ A successful MBA grad who expected to work for a top hedge fund after graduation is instead sleeping on a friend's couch. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=622597 I should have thrown away my med school application when I did worst decision ever. The stress and etc is not worth it. I would rather be a "LAWYER". The bottom line is school is not a guarantee and there always dissatisfied people in every profession. Finding a job sucks and as I have said a million times I have still yet to meet anybody working in any profession that says man I am so overpaid and underworked.
There are problems and I said a they should do one of two things. Make admission requirements far higher than they area. As it stands to satisfy U.S. News schools just take someone with a decent GPA in religoius studies or whatever B.S. filed of study and a decent LSAT score. Most of the people at any ABA law school are somewhat intelligent regarding tests etc. However, being halfway decent on a MC question is no indication of being a good lawyer, but that is the standard. So they should require formal interviews at EVERY LAW SCHOOL. Also make it requirement you work in a law office for some set amount of hours maybe 200 that will at least show some type of commitment to law school. Opposed to the typical I graduated college now what oh there is this MC test I can take and then give me 3 more years of my life. They could make you take pre-law courses before enrolling to show real dedication. Nursing and Medical schools require this and you need to take biology courses etc to get in. Law schools could require you to take 3-4 prelaw classes before even being able to apply. It is way to easy to get into the majority of law schools now and that is a problem. I think MBA's are the same way. The only profession with stringent admission requirements are Medical and Nursing schools and they have better placment. Law schools should also basically provide you with a free year of clinical experience. They should make a clinic after you pass the bar where you have to work like a residency in the Medical Profession. Something that actually prepares you for real practice of writing motions, fact finding etc. Instead of leaving you knowing about how far the Executive Powers of the President go and putting you in the real world. Those are just some ideas and the whole system could be far more practical and that applies to education everywhere.
True, but he is restricted by his residency and offers as I understanding, but I could be wrong. I though how it worked this is based on complete hearsay is that you sign a contract for a period of 5 years to finish your residency and you are locked into a salary of 50,000 give or take. He cannot leave this position and his right to get more or less for a period of 5 years is restriced. I would imagine at the end of his residency he gets a solid offer, but he is still somewhat locked into the hosptial. The pro or con of being a lawyer is that you can make money right after graduation and you are not required to finish a residency. The obvious problem is finding clients for yourself or a firm to help you make money. Still if you are really good at being a lawyer out of the gate you can make some dough and the same is not true of being doctor-again as I understand it base don hearsay. So a J.D. gives you more of a chance for success, but there is also a higher risk of failing miserably.
